Nutrition and Education: A case for Anganwadi in a slum settlement

Kadru Kumhar Toli, a slum settlement in Ranchi, Jharkhand, is home to about 250 families. 49 children in this community are below the age of 5 but there is no Anganwadi centre around. Community Correspondent Nirmala Ekka’s report shows that Anganwadi would go a long way in escalating the poor standards of education in the area.


CALL TO ACTION: Call Surabhi Singh, Child Development Project Officer for Ranchi district, on +91-9431312338, to demand that an Anganwadi be authorized and established for the residents of this area so that their children are given much needed access to education and basic healthcare.


In addition to basic healthcare, Anganwadis also provide basic pre-primary education and nutritious food to children. In KarduKumharToli, the lack of an Anganwadi here even more conspicuous. Residents have recently approached their local representative with an application for an Anganwadi, but little has been done about it since then.
